Sunday Funday

Good morning, all. How was the weekend? Hopefully it as great!

I was too busy livin’ life yesterday to either a) post or b) take photos- which needs to be addressed immediately. Sometimes I forget I’m supposed to be blogging about more than just funny memes.

Not really. I just got lazy.

But no more! I promise I’ll be much better with my photos from here on out. I should probably consider investing in a camera, since I’ll probably need one for Fitbloggin in June anyway. Maybe for my birthday?

Anyway, time for a quick Sunday update!

I missed my long run this weekend, so I’m feeling a little disappointed. I was supposed to run 6 miles yesterday- but how could I run 6 miles with so much else to do!

Yesterday, after trying to meet with our Pastor, Shane took me to see the suit he likes for the wedding. He looked so handsome in it- it was definitely a moment for me. With time seeming to go so, so fast (my birthday is 2 weeks from today, which is mind blowing) I know it’s going to feel like no time at all until the big day is finally here!

After suit viewing, Shane and I made our way over to a sport’s bar in town called Deano’s to watch the number 2 ranked Wichita State Shockers take on Indiana State for the MVC tournament title. While I thought there were a couple close calls (sort of), the Shox still pulled it out and became MVC champs for the first time since the 8o’s Talk about a comeback story. I can’t wait to watch them heading into the NCAA tournament this year!

Last night, after the excitement of the game, I decided on a longer walk outside rather than doing my cross training in the gym. It was a whopping 58 degrees and sunny here yesterday, so it was pretty much perfect. (I should have taken photos, it was so gorgeous!)

I’ll remember to snap some today when I’m out there- it’s supposed to be a high of 75 today (!!!!) Shorts and long sleeves is my favorite weather.

In other news, last night Shane and I finally made it to the movies…but not to see the Lego Movie. No, no no… we saw the new 300 movie instead. In 3d.

300-rise-of-an-empire

 

Not that I’m complaining- I wanted to see it, too. However, I will say I liked the original much better. The plot on this one was a little weak (Weaker than the first. Yes.) And I found I didn’t care nearly as much about what happened to the Athenians than I did about the Spartans.

But ya know, to each their own Greek city state.

Even with all of the visuals, which mostly were great but which almost started to feel video-game like at parts?- there was too much weird/unnecessary other stuff that I found distracting. Like really graphic sex scenes for no strategic reason. With crazy women.

She’s pretty much nuts.

Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.

 

Anyhooo, it’s Monday! And it’s supposed to be warm and beautiful! I can’t help but be in a great mood when spring is so, so close. I intend to get every drop of sunshine and warmth out of today that I can- maybe I’ll even run my 6 miles outside today?

Have an amazing Monday everyone!

Scenes From Last Weekend

Heya folks! So sorry, so much has been going on around here that I just haven’t had a chance to sit and write here. BUT I have a ton of photos from last weekend that I ahevn’t gotten to share yet, so I thought I’d do that today!

No worries- I’ll provide explanations for them all here shortly! But this weekend is crazy busy, too- I have a dress fitting Saturday morning, a bunch of running around Kansas City to do, seeing some friends and then having my very first bridal shower on Sunday! It’s being thrown by my Maid of Honor and her mother, who are two of the most amazing people I know. They’ve worked so, so hard on this shower and I am so excited to see everything they’ve done!

Busy weekend, folks.

So without further adieu, here are scenes from last weekend!

Alrighty kiddos, have an awesome Friday!

Blog Fail

Hi friends.

I’m embarrassed to admit that I haven’t been taking really any photos at all of things these past few days. Truthfully, I’ve mostly just been working, running errands or finding time to hit the gym- and that just doesn’t leave much to be desired in the way of healthy living blogging.

Blogger fail.

I can tell you that I’ve had really solid workouts all week.

I can also tell you that I’ve been eating well, drinking a ton of water, and trying to limit my intake of soda.

Pretty boring, huh?

Last night, my mom and I went to look around a little bit for jewelry for my bridesmaids. Then, I went on a little venture of my own to pick out a couple things for Shane’s Valentine’s Day gift!

I love Valentine’s Day. I just do.

do-you-have-a-date-for-valentines-day

It doesn’t hurt that I’m marrying a man who has some of the most unique, impressive and creative ways of celebrating V-day on the plant.

Two years ago, we “went” to Paris. Shane created this gorgeous table, a “window” with a view of the Eiffel Tower outside it, French music, delicious (and homemade) French food- and even a plane ride.

Yup. He recorded the sounds of a plane ride- complete with the southern pilot, dinging “seat belt” signs, complimentary champagne- the works.

I used to have photos of it on my phone, but I’ve gotten a new phone since then and I don’t know where they are anymore!

Then last year, we “went” to Cancun. We had a table on the beach, tropical music and super delicious quesadillas. Oh, and the plane…the plane…let’s just say he went ultra “authentic” with it- complete with shots of tequila.

As for this year, I got Shane to tell me that we’ll actually be making a trip to Italy this year. But, since he’s pretty sure he threw out the window and the wall, “we might just have a table right in the middle of the piazza.”

He’s so cute.

So, even though this post might be a tad on the boring side- let me just say this: I’ll be sure and take plenty of photos tomorrow night!

As for now, I need to run a few more errands, get a pedicure and finish my workout for today- I went over lunch the past 2 days to get my cardio in and I’ve really enjoyed that.

Catch ya later, alligators!
